End of the School Year Ice Pop Social: June 14th, 2:30-4:30p

It's the end of the school year and we are bringing the folks at Wild Pops back-by popular demand! On Friday, June 14th, from 2:30-4:30p, the Wild Pops cart will be parked in front of Pod selling their small-batch, all-natural, ice pops. (Let's pray for sun ok?)

We're putting a call out to all eager-to-be-let free kids, exhausted-from-the-overscheduling parents, and over-extended teachers. Temperatures are rising and the last day of school is seconds away. How about we all celebrate with flavors like Belgian chocolate, coconut, watermelon, and spicy pineapple. Plus, we love hearing about all of your Summer plans ! 

Tell your friends. Bring your dogs. Everyone is welcome. Pops will be $4 each.

Bensimons are back. Every spring we look forward to the day when these favorites arrive in the shop.  It means summer is just around the corner.

Originally worn by the French Army, this cotton and rubber tennis shoe was redesigned in 1978 by the Serge and Yves Bensimon. They were further popularized when style icon Jane Birkin began to wear them. 

Featuring a soft canvas upper and a flexible rubber sole, we are offering two different styles this season:
The Elastique: A shop favorite, the Bensimon elastique is a casual and soft canvas slip on with a stretchy front and flexible rubber sole. 

The Tennis: Bensimon's classic 'tennis' style sneaker. A soft canvas lace-up with flexible rubber sole.

Both styles are sized in whole European sizes.  The sizing tends to run small, so for example if you are a US 7.5, go up to a size 38. 

In our brick and mortar shop we've got other fun colors available as well. Some are even posted on our Instagram account if you'd care to take a peek. But, if you're in the neighborhood come say hi and see them for yourself. If you're not local, call or email and we'll be happy to help you out.

Rose Tasting Sunday May 5th, 2-4p

Open on a Sunday? Yes! For a rosé tasting we will be !

Join us Sunday, May 5th from 2-4p as we welcome Kim Park from the Wine and Cheese Cask. Kim is our favorite steward of all things wine and is a wine buyer at the Cask. She'll be sharing some of this seasons' rosé wines that she thinks you should know about. A little from Provence, a little from the Basque region, and well... it's Kim's pick. Come learn, taste, and get ready for Summer. 

The Wine and Cheese Cask is a favorite in our Cambridge/Somerville community. For 50 years they've been serving up specialty wines, beers, spirits, the most delicious cheeses, and gourmet foods from around the globe. They even make sandwiches! If you're not familiar with the 'cask', it's certainly worth a visit to the corner of Beacon and Washington Streets.

And, to accompany your vino, we'll be cracking open a few of our Portuguese conservas to try on the side. It's going to be a delicious Sunday afternoon and we hope you can attend.

A special thank you to Fawn DeViney for letting us use her photograph for our promotional endeavors. XO

Pod will be open 12-5p Sunday May, 5th. This event is from 2-4p.
